Over the past thirty years, I have worked with children, adolescents, and adults with diverse mental health issues including, depression, anxiety, Post-concussive syndrome, ADHD, learning disabilities, ASD, addiction, grief, and trauma. Recognizing that individuals experience stress in many aspects of their life and struggle with life's transitions, I work with children and adolescents transitioning through the stages of development and with adults facing marital, parenting, custody and relationship issues. I conduct psychological and neuropsychological testing to evaluate for mental health, academic, and neurological issues.

During last 15 years of professional training and experience, I have developed effective strategies which have helped families get through difficult times. My area of specialty is family therapy and I strive to help children and parents be successful. My therapeutic approach employs each family's unique qualities and strengths. With short term goals, I often use Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), which is structured and ensures the progress is easy to track and the time spent in therapy is productive.

The great majority of my clients suffer from anxiety and depression often triggered by conflicts in families, school, jobs, with authority figures, and peers. I enable my clients unlock their strengths and skill sets to unstick themselves, address their barriers and conflicts, and find solutions. My client base includes teachers, students, law enforcement officers, parents, professionals, and financial advisers. Through my leadership experience in crises and trauma events (including 9/11), I have developed a coping model presented in my book, Resiliency. I use this model to help people to "bounce back" and restore high-level functioning. My approaches are short-term and solution-based.

Are you a law enforcement officer who has thought about speaking to a professional regarding a personal or family issue, but have never felt comfortable reaching out for help? The decision to seek outside help is never easy and the process is even harder for those in law enforcement because of serious and real concerns regarding confidentiality.

I provide therapy through a combination of teletherapy & in-home support, as opposed to a traditional office setting. Sessions that take place in your home provide me more insight into what is truly going on. I understand it may not be easy sharing intimate thoughts with a new person, albeit a professional. I prioritize the building of a solid therapeutic relationship so that we have a strong foundation to work from. You can expect that I will offer opinions and suggestions from time to time, but that I will not tell you what to do. You can expect to be respected. Your emotional needs are important & deserve attention & time.
